Provide your doctor or healthcare professional with a complete medical history. Be sure to inform him/her of anything unusual about your personal or family health history, or any changes in your diet or lifestyle, before a prescription is written. You know more about you than your doctor possibly can.
Always take your medication as instructed by your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional, and never change the way you take it unless one of these healthcare professionals instructs you to do so. A medication will provide little benefit if you skip doses or stop taking it before you should, and could be harmful if you exceed the recommended dose.
When taking prescription medicines, there are many possible explanations for symptoms, other than a drug reaction. However, if you experience a new symptom and it began after you started taking a new medication, contact your doctor, pharmacist or other healthcare professional immediately.
